December 14, 2009 — Vancouver, British Columbia – Jiulian Resources Inc. (“Jiulian” or the “Company”) (TSXV: JLR) is pleased to announce the 2009 exploration results on the Hawk Property, located in south-central British Columbia, Canada. Jiulian has an option to earn up to a 65-per-cent interest in the Hawk Property.
The results of Jiulian’s 2009 work program and a thorough analysis of previous exploration results have yielded new exploration model for the Hawk Property.
Jiulian believes the relatively high grade mineral showings present on the western portion of the property might be related to a down-dropped and concealed manto/skarn/porphyry copper-gold system located on the eastern part of the property, which has been delineated by soil, lithogeochemical and 3D IP surveys. In 2010, the Company plans to drill test the concealed anomaly.
Jiulian is well funded, with approximately $1.6 million currently in its treasury, and is optimistic about its exploration of the Hawk Property, which will focus on the much larger tonnage potential of disseminated copper and gold mineralization on the central and eastern part of the property identified by the geological, geophysical and geochemical work.
The exploration previously conducted on the property included: airborne magnetic and radiation survey, soil/rock sampling and assaying, 3D IP survey, geological mapping and trenching/drilling.
The 2009 field work on the Hawk Property focused on additional geological mapping, outcrop sampling and soil geochemical confirmation. Approximately 8 square kilometres was remapped. A total of 57 lithogeochemical samples, 17 stream sediment and 40 soil geochemical samples were collected. All samples as well as standards and duplicates were assayed by Acme Labs in Vancouver, BC.
Geological inspection and mapping on the Hawk Property conducted by Jiulian in 2009 has identified many more outcrops and a greater variety of rock types than previously reported. In terms of stratigraphic sequences, there is a sedimentary sequence sandwiched by a base volcanic sequence and a cap volcanic sequence at the Hawk Property. This sedimentary sequence consists of lahar or volcanic mudflow, greywacke, calcareous siltstone, black schist and marble in the upward sequence. In addition to the intrusive rocks mapped previously, ultramafic stock, mafic pegmatite and aplite have been recently mapped and sampled. Intrusive breccia and hydrothermal breccia zones have also been found around the contact zone between syenite/monzonite and the cap volcanics. The most distinctive structures are a set of reverse faults striking north-northwesterly and dipping high angle toward west. This set of faults divides the Hawk Property into eastern and western part, and may have important implications for a possible drill target within a down-dropped eastern block. Other less distinctive structures strike northeasterly and dip toward the northwest.
Three of 17 stream sediment samples taken in 2009 return anomalous values of copper. One from the catchment of Knob showing gives 177 ppm Cu, other two from the catchments cover the western and northeastern portions of the central eastern geophysical and geochemical anomalous area and return 302 and 99.9 ppm Cu respectively. Soil samples taken from the extended grid line 4800N and newly added 4700N with line distance of 100 metre and station distance of 50 metre return positive anomalous values. Combining with the previous data, 17 soil samples with the values of greater than 100 ppm Cu and adjoining to each other overlap the northern and north-eastern portion of the geophysical anomaly. 6 and 3 of these soil samples give greater than 230 and 400 ppm Cu respectively. Three of the lithogeochemical samples taken from the western part of the Hawk Property or the southern extension of the Knob show return the values range from 2485 to 9936 ppm Cu or 0.25 to 0.99% Cu. These samples are calcareous wacke and similar to the host rock of Knob showing. Some of the lithogeochemical samples taken from the hydrothermal breccia that crops out around the geophysical and soil geochemical anomaly which is located at the eastern part of the property return anomalous value of copper range from 258 to 506 ppm Cu.
